Young Hyson Supreme Loose Leaf Green Tea. A nice long green tea leaf. Fragrant and sweet taste tea from China.
Hyson, which means “flourishing spring” in Chinese, signifies the season in which this tea is picked.
Harvested just before rains, it embodies the warmth, sunny, and fresh green character of spring. Young Hyson refers to the superior quality of tea with a pungent, full bodied taste.
The twisted long and thin leaves open up and yield a sweet and light cup with an earthy aroma.
It is also known as Precious Eyebrows- Eyebrow shaped leaves with a slightly longer leaf. As the leaves unfurl and expand in size, it should be used sparingly for optimum flavour. It can be served both hot and iced. Though the hot hyson tea is usually liked without milk or sugar, cold hyson can be garnished with lime or lemon.
The taste is fragrant and sweet.
